    The x server cannot auto-size to accommodate your keyboard, nor does it know what size keyboard you have. So, it assumes you're using XS (to maximize screen space). Simply change your keyboard to this size to see the entire X screen.

    If you don't like using the XS keyboard size, and want to tell X to make the available screen size smaller to accommodate a larger keyboard, install "Tweaks" and use that to change the xserver's expected virtual keyboard size to your preferred size. Note that Tweaks also lets you turn /off/ reserving space for a virtual keyboard, which is useful for bluetooth keyboard users.

    ATM you can only do this between X server invocations--not on-the-fly.

    Hope this helps!

    any idea on how to set a wallpaper? i know its purley cosmetic
  3. #163  
    In LXDE, if you have added right-click support (via my touch-and-hold method or other methods), you "right-click" on the desktop to set the wallpaper.

    EDIT: You can also set this in the ~/.config/pcmanfm/main.lxde file

    I went throught the army of monkeys as well. I opened up WOSQI and went to linux command line, and entered all the commands, without any errors popping up.

    I've gone through the whole thread and couldn't find anything, and I'm not sure what I'm missing. Appreciate the help.

    I would uninstall xectuah, xserver and xterm, reboot. Then re-install and it should work, this happened to me and that fixed it.

    "apt-get" is a single command (no space between "apt" and "-get")

    A couple of questions:
    how do I set it so that the right-click and mount vfat commands run at start up?

    secondly, where do I enter the unmount command?
    The terminal that I start with seems unresponsive and opening an lxterminal crashes he crashes the card.

    EDIT:
    I figured out where to unmount.

    sudo apt-get install gnome-terminal

    for a working terminal in LXDE
  14. #174  
    I've been playing around and testing with a couple different builds over the last couple of days and I think I've found a relatively feasible solution. It's a bit bloated but I got tired of hunting down dependencies and just took the east route.

    For a GUI I used xubuntu-desktop which works pretty well so far. My biggest goals and concerns were RDP and VNC. grdesktop works extremely well especially if you've got a Bluetooth keyboard. Essentially with VPN access in webOS this was a must and it works really well. The best VNC app I can find so far seems to be the included Remote Desktop Viewer. VNC seems to be a little slow when drawing the screen initially and more so when refreshing when using the included viewer, however, again grdesktop runs amazingly well.

    I've had no problem with gnome-terminal in this setup, my only real problem is getting the damn 'p' key to work... It works upper-case but no lower.... As of now, that's the only problem that really bugs me.

    Any suggestions on this damn 'p' key? Can't do any apt or anything with a p in the terminal once the GUI is up....

    So I am curious. How would I go about 'formatting' the linux partition if I wanted to just start from scratch with all this linux goodness? Is that possible? Just in case I happen to mess something up I want to know that I can without having to doctor up again. Would uninstalling the XPrograms and Ubuntu do the trick or is more needed?

    Has anyone got ubuntu-2d/unity-2d working? Whenever I try "gnome-session 2d-ubuntu" the desktop seems to load fully (launcher, panel, nautilus, metacity, etc) but then crashes the X server on me. I'd really like to try out unity on this device since it seems relatively well set up for a touch interface...

    You could just delete everything in the /media/ext3fs folder with xterm or intenalz. then uninstall/reinstall ubuntu.
    There may be easierways, but that is just off the top of my head.

    1. Uninstall Ubunu Chroot in Preware.
    2. Reboot the device (don't just reload Luna)
    3. Run Xecutah, then XTerm.
    4. Type:

    cd /media/ext3fs
    rm -rf u (press Tab to autocomplete the ubuntu chroot dir before hitting enter)

    The terminal will seem to freeze for up to two minutes. Once you have the prompt back, close the Xserver.

    5. Go reinstall the Ubuntu Chroot in Preware.
    6. You're good to go!

    Also, anyone had any luck getting either lxterminal or roxterm to start in LXDE?
    Thanks for this - it really makes a difference, especially when using RDP! I just wanted to share that putting this line into '/usr/bin/startlxde' loads the module automatically when I start LXDE using 'startlxde' from the command line.

    And, btw, I'm using gnome-terminal, fwiw.

    I have seen people talking about how they installed Utorrent in Ubuntu on their Touchpads. I tried to do it, it seems to require wine to get it to run. I was under the impression we could not put wine on these computers because they are not amd or intel processors. How are people doing this?
